Ye yourselves know that these hands ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. In all things I gave you an example, that so laboring ye ought to help the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:34-35).
Giving is a crucial part of Christianity; we have been given much by God so that we can be a blessing to others. Yet for any to give, someone must receive. We do well to explore giving and receiving according to the Scriptures.
